An Old-English Retreat

The clients of this project wanted to create a home that felt like an old English cottage. Francis Garcia of Francis Garcia Architect studied the architecture of aged English cottages through photos, as well as referenced some homes in Carmel, CA. In search of the right stone to complement the client’s stylistic goals, Eldorado Stone’s York Limestone was exactly what they were looking for. Having experienced a great deal of success with the installation, both Francis Garcia and Ken Blaise of Blaise Construction & Development receive a great deal of requests from people inquiring about the kind of stone that brought such a strong sense of authenticity to the client’s home.
